Surface Lot Parking (Complimentary)
Campus guests may park at a variety of surface lots around campus free of charge after 5 p.m. on Friday and throughout the weekend (no parking pass or coupon required). To take advantage of complimentary surface lot parking simply arrive at a valid lot anytime on Sunday, February 2 (taking care to allow for extra travel time to the Campus Center), and avoid any lots/spaces marked as 24-hour reserved or reserved for specific staff/vendors. Click here to view an interactive parking map and enter "Free Parking (On Weekends)" in the search bar to filter for complimentary surface lot parking options. Convenient options relatively close to the Campus Center include lot 65 (~7 minute walk)
, lot 30 (~6 minute walk) and lot 25 (~13 minute walk). Please note that these lots do require additional travel time to the Campus Center, and it may be confusing to navigate to the Campus Center from the lot.
